NFS erAug 4 17:28:58 jane kerneNFS errors

Hi

   The network I administrate has NFS errors from time to time (I know

it shouldn't be anything major, but the error:

Aug  4 17:28:58 jane kernel: nfs_statfs: statfs error = 512
Aug  4 17:28:58 jane kernel: nfs_statfs: statfs error = 512

brought the network down to its knees and nothing worked until the

computer that generated these errors was restarted. Is there anyone

that can explain in max details what these errors mean and under what

conditions it happens (so I can hopefully avoid future crashes).
A recent addition to the syslog is:

Aug  4 18:00:39 jane kernel: nfs_stat_to_errno: bad nfs status return value: 116

Please reply to my email.
